There are many types of skin issues that pester women and men, and they can all influence a person’s well-being. Those afflictions include age spots, brown spots, enlarged pores, blackheads, acne scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. If don’t like having or being seen with any of these conditions, take comfort in the fact that there are ways to reverse them with a process known as microdermabrasion.
We can help restore your skin to its natural, healthy appearance using this technique, which was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1996. Since then, hundreds of microdermabrasion procedures have been performed, and our experienced, friendly skin-care professionals can determine just the right treatment for your skin issue.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew the overall tone and texture of your skin. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring and other skin-related conditions. Using a special applicator with an abrasive surface, the thick outer layer of the skin is gently sanded away. Another technique sprays fine particles of particular exfoliating chemicals onto the skin that are then suctioned off.
Microdermabrasion requires no anesthesia or numbing agent. You’ll be in a chair that reclines. A handheld device will gently treat the outer layer of skin in the areas you want to be targeted. Moisturizer will then be applied. Common side effects of microdermabrasion include temporary mild tenderness, swelling and redness. The aesthetic effects of microdermabrasion are well worth any discomfort you may experience.
